Rochester, N.Y.-based Carestream Health Inc. and Malvern, Pa.-based Siemens Medical Solutions have released an integrated digital medical imaging system featuring a portable x-ray generator and computed radiography (CR) system.

According to both companies, the CR-ITX 560 system features a shared user interface and power source, processes up to 60 images an hour with images being ready after 38 seconds, and supports multiple plate sizes.

The system also has hospital information system/radiology information system (HIS/RIS) compatibility, contends Carestream and Siemens, and 560 supports DICOM Store and DICOM Print capabilities and uses a standard network outlet for communication.
